The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) invites you to
join a free Web conference August 26 from 2:30-4 p.m. Eastern Time:
Using Health IT to Reduce Medication Errors and Improve Patient Safety.
There are 1.5 continuing education (CE) credits available to participants
who attend the entire Web conference and complete the online evaluation.
This web conference will review research to improve medication
management strategies to reduce errors and improve outcomes
through (1) implementation of the “Medication Metronome” project to
support between-visit medication safety monitoring and dose adjustment
for patients with chronic conditions, (2) evaluation of the potential severity
of specific Look-Alike, Sound-Alike (LASA) drug name substitution errors
in pediatric ambulatory practice to flag potential errors, and (3)
implementation of a medication reconciliation program that seeks to
understand how electronic facilitation of medication reconciliation alters
the incidence of medication errors in ambulatory care.
